In our culture, it is common to hear the word soulmate. Almost every man or woman who has ever fallen in love has called the object of her affection her soulmate. But is it really that simple?
Is everyone we fall in love with a soulmate connection? What is the difference between “the one” and your soulmate? Is it the same thing or is there a significant difference? Let’s find out.
Finding your soulmate is a once in a lifetime experience. You only get one soulmate. They are literally the other half of you. You only get one other half, you don’t get five halves. Sometimes they can be your better half, but either way, together you are whole because both halves have been joined. When you find your soulmate you are literally fitting two halves together to make one whole. You feel a sense of finally being complete and finding your missing piece. Finding your soulmate can be both a blessing and a curse. It’s a blessing if you meet and stay together, but a curse if you meet but the timing is wrong or other obstacles get in your way and you are forced to be apart. Once you feel that soulmate connection you are never the same again. It is a powerful invisible force that only you and your other half can feel. I feel it is almost better to never meet your soulmate at all than to have to meet them and then be forced to part because that can prove to be almost unbearable.
So how do you know if you’ve met your true soulmate? If you have to talk yourself into it or even have to think about it then you know they’re not your soulmate. When you feel a soulmate connection it’s instant and you couldn’t be more sure about it in your mind. It’s like you just know deep inside that this particular person was meant for you and no one else in the world. There’s no doubt or fear in your mind, in fact, you have never been surer of anything in your life like this. When you meet your soulmate for the first time, it won’t feel like you’re just meeting, you’ll feel like you’ve known them forever but just haven’t seen each other for awhile. Your soulmate will feel really familiar to you even though you’ve just met. If you had no prior knowledge of soulmates, this might be an almost awkward feeling because you’re thinking to yourself “why does this person feel so familiar if we’ve only just met?” How can this possibly be happening because this is real life and not a fairy tale? The thing is you just know. Something inside of you recognizes them way before your mind can fully comprehend it. Your rational mind wants to find an explanation for it, but your soul already knows what it feels because its other half is found.
After you meet your soulmate and feel all these feelings toward them your mind starts to catch up with your heart and soul. Suddenly, you feel like you can take on the world as long as you have this person by your side. You can do anything and go anywhere as long as they are there with you. You suddenly see your whole life ahead of you. If you’ve never wanted to have a family and children before suddenly you can’t wait to get started with your soulmate. You start to see the world in a different and better way. If you were a pessimist before, suddenly you see life as the glass half full instead of half empty. You feel this sort of magnetic connection to them that you have never felt in your life before. You’re no longer thinking of your ex-boyfriend or that guy who got away because they no longer exist to you. Your true soulmate connection makes you forget every other relationship you ever had because they no longer matter to you. It’s like your heart and soul has been asleep all this time and they’re finally waking up. This is what love really feels like and it is truly the best drug around because it’s the human soul on fire.
The connection between you and your soulmate is unlike anything else you have ever experienced. Sometimes you don’t even need words to convey your feelings. When words are used, you finish each others’ sentences. You seem to know what the other is thinking even before you say it. You have many things in common of course. The different talents you each have come together and fulfill one another. The things you lack in are the things he excels in so you can learn from him and the things you are good in he may not know much about which means he can learn from you. Between the two of you, together, you have everything you need to be truly happy. Everything suddenly makes more sense about the world and it truly feels like its meant to be. This is the way love is supposed to feel like and everything else is just fiction.
Your soulmate is your best friend and your biggest fan. They love you with their whole heart and soul and would gladly give up their life for yours. It is an unconditional sort of love. The kind where you know you can make mistakes and mess up but they will still be there for you always. Your soulmate doesn’t play games or make you chase him. There is no room for such foolish things when it comes to a connection this strong and real. You never have to wonder your soulmate’s feelings for you because they will let you know every day and in every way possible. There is no lack of trust or communication in a soulmate connection. Your soulmate cheers you on through life and is your biggest supporter. They help you become the best possible version of yourself and if you happen to fall they will pick you up and carry you. They will fight your battles for you and defend you to the moon and back. Your soulmate is the definition of the best partner a person can have.
So what’s the difference between a soulmate and “the one”? Well, I believe there’s only one person that is truly meant for everyone and that is their soulmate. This is the only person who you will be the happiest with out of all of the other people on the planet. It doesn’t mean that just because you don’t find your soulmate that you can’t be happy. I believe you can be happy with a lot of people. You could fall in love with someone and be truly content and happy with that person even if they’re not your soulmate. Sure, your connection may not be quite as strong as with a soulmate, but nonetheless, you could still be in love.
The truth is, you can’t really know what a soulmate connection is unless you’ve felt it. It’s not something that is easy to describe. But once you feel it you will know what I mean. It’s a feeling that is unlike any other. That’s why I said before that sometimes it’s better not to meet your soulmate if you can’t be together because it is way too hard to move on from that, impossible in fact. If you do meet your soulmate, it’s best to do whatever possible to end up together for good. This type of connection only happens once in a lifetime and you simply can’t let it slip away because it will definitely not happen again. I think you can even know if you’ve met your soulmate from a photo you see of someone who seems extremely familiar to you. If you see a person’s photo and you just can’t get them out of your mind because it’s like you know them or recognize them and feel an undeniable connection, then it might be worth it to check it out and see if you can meet them in person because this could be the soulmate you’ve been waiting your whole life for. In this modern world of technology we live in, our soulmate could be just a click away! I think when it’s time for soulmates to meet and they are meant to be together nothing can truly stand in their way. Distance is never an obstacle. Circumstances could never interfere. Other romantic interests could never stand a chance against a soulmate connection. It’s like it was written in the stars. An example of a soulmate connection that I can think of is the movie The Notebook. I think this is about as close to a soulmate connection as you can see in the movies these days.
So why does a soulmate connection feel so familiar to you even if you’ve just met this person? It’s because souls can recognize each other from other past lifetimes. Your mind may not remember it, but your soul does. When you meet your soulmate, you’re feeling like you’re finally coming home. It’s like you’ve been away for awhile, but you’re home now. Soulmates usually know each other in other lifetimes and have probably planned to meet in every lifetime, possibly even this one.
So what happens if you meet your soulmate and it’s just not meant to be and you don’t end up together in this life? Well, that’s a tough one. Like I said, it’s better not to have met them than to have met them and had to part. You can’t miss what you don’t know but if you already know what a soulmate connection feels like then it’s impossible to forget. I don’t think anyone really moves on from a soulmate connection. Sure, they can get married to someone else and seem to have their life in order but they will always remember what true love felt like with their soulmate. Losing your soulmate is like the one who got away times 100. You will always compare every guy or girl you meet your soulmate. You’ll look for qualities in that person that you had your soulmate. Sometimes, it even goes so far as looking for people who physically look like your soulmate that seem attractive to you simply because it’s like a piece of your soulmate is in them. That’s why it is much better to stay with your soulmate if you meet them or not meet at all because the other option is simply too much to handle.
If you’ve met your true soulmate, life is pretty amazing for you. You have your best friend and your true love all in one package. Being in love is good for your health, but being in love with your soulmate is amazing for your health. What can you look forward to in the coming years with your soulmate? Great health, many long years together, and fulfillment in every aspect of your life. Are you a creative type that needs inspiration for your work? Well, your soulmate provides that and much more. You will never be uninspired or lack motivation again. Writer’s block? No such thing with your soulmate around. Every day you will wake up and be excited to live life. It won’t really matter where you live because as long as you have each other that’s all you really need. Nothing seems impossible or out of reach. If you have met your soulmate and you end up together in this life, you can consider yourself one of the luckiest human beings alive. This is a blessing that very few know about and even less actually get to experience it. It’s truly a once in a lifetime type of thing. And really, if you’re going to fall in love, who better to fall in love with than the only person who was truly meant for you?
